Math Tutoring in El Segundo

Math Tutoring in El Segundo

Why is Math considered to be the hardest subject out of the sciences?

Of course, it is hard when you don’t understand what’s going on.
Math is all logic, and thus requires logical thinking. Unfortunately, that’s something that many people seem to lack nowadays.

Why are Gundo’s Math tutors better than all the other math tutors?

We are not just here to show your student how to solve the problem like the teacher often does in class. We won’t let your student leave the Hut by just doing the homework. We are here to make sure your student fully understand the materials and walk out the door with confidence in Math.

DSC_0146

How do we assure about that?

First, we do a small analysis of your student’s behavior and personality, so that we get to know his or her styles of learning Math. As we all come from different backgrounds, there are students who prefer learning Math in many different ways: visual; you prefer using pictures and images, examples; you prefer learning by doing similar problems, and real life examples; you prefer knowing how to transform Math into real life situation. Our Gundo Math tutors are highly well-experienced and they all come from diverse background. Our goal is to clear the pathway of any obstacles in the way of mastering Math.

No worries! If your student doesn’t like doing Math; most likely they don’t understand what’s going on. Our Gundo Math tutors are well prepared in their specialized subjects; in fact, they are here to clarify your student’s confusion in Math. Since Gundo tutors are mostly college grads, your student will get along with them easily. We offer the following subjects in Math:

Free Practice SAT and ACT Exams

August 18th, 2016

Practice SAT and ACT Exams

Study Hut Tutoring offers free practice SAT and ACT exams. It is important to know that tackling the SAT or ACT can be a daunting challenge for many students. Performing to the best of one’s availability is vital in order to strive for acceptance to increasingly competitive colleges and universities. Students are often unaware of how to effectively prepare for the SAT or ACT. Rest assured, Study Hut Tutoring in El Segundo is here to offer guidance and support through tailored test prep tutoring and free SAT and ACT practice tests.

In order to provide our students with specialized, tailored test ACT and SAT tutoring sessions, we encourage our students to complete a full length, free SAT or ACT practice test. We then critically analyze the results and prepare a tutoring plan tailored to our students, emphasizing focus on areas of potential improvement. As we move through scheduled tutoring sessions, students will return to take additional free SAT or ACT practice tests, which allows us to check our progress in real time and shift focus when the need is indicated by performance.

In addition to reviewing specific concepts and learning new strategies and test taking techniques, exercising to build test taking endurance is crucial. The SAT and ACT are each about four hours long. No matter how you cut it, four hours is a long time to maintain focus, flex cognitive abilities, and perform at a consistently high level. By completing free SAT or ACT practice tests, Study Hut students develop their ability to persevere through mental fatigue. Without a simulated experience made possible by full length practice tests, improving endurance is difficult, and Study Hut is pleased to offer this service to our students.

The fall SAT and ACT are approaching quickly, and here at Study Hut we are eager to see the performance of our prepared students and to observe them flourish. Having completed a personalized test prep plan, in conjunction with effective independent study and the completion of multiple SAT or ACT practice tests, our students will be confident and prepared to rise to the challenge on test day and endure through fatigue and difficulty.

El Segundo: New Location!

May 8th, 2016

We’ve moved! We couldn’t be more thrilled to officially announce our new address at 529 Main Street. We are happy to sit on the cozy corner of Main Street and Imperial. We are surrounded by other great El Segundo businesses and restaurants, and we are excited to get to know our neighbors.

 

Our new location is within walking distance of El Segundo High School, so our students can easily mosey down Main Street and grab a bite to eat before coming to their appointments at the Hut. This makes it more convenient than ever for our ESHS students to get homework help, study for that big test, or prepare for the SAT/ACT, especially for our students who aren’t driving yet.

In addition, our new location is bigger! The newly improved Hut can accommodate twice as many desks, meaning students have more access to the wonderful El Segudno staff. With more room for whiteboards, more room for computers, and more room for snacks, the new Hut is better than ever.

Our new location is also easy to spot. It is literally a Hut on stilts! Just look for our signs in the window! Our stilted hut looks over the park across the street and has parking accessible below the building. So our students who do drive, have an easy place to park their cars. Even though our address has changed, our services have not. We still offer all of the Study Hut classics; like K-12 subject tutoring, ACT and SAT prep, private school entrance exam help, college admission counseling, and free diagnostic exams and consultations. Our same great El Segundo branch’s staff of tutors will be there and maybe even a few new ones. We are excited to have a bigger and more convenient space to help our El Segundo students succeed. Come down and check it out. Better yet, give us a call and get started today!
